Practical work

As well as learning the theory through the online tutorials, you will also need to work within a school during your course – this can be as a paid member of staff or as a volunteer. You will need to arrange your placement with the school of your choice by asking the Head Teacher if the school can accommodate you, as the Teacher with whom you will work will need to spend some time signing off evidence that you have completed the necessary work for your units. Your placement will need to be at least 50 hours in total during the course of 12 months.

Assessment

During your work experience, you will build up a portfolio of evidence. There are no exams, but you will need to submit written assignments to demonstrate your understanding of what you have been taught.

You will also need to gather evidence of the work you have carried out during your placement within a UK school and will need to provide documents such as policies, diaries and examples of work.

If you are successful you will gain an industry recognised NCFE Level 3 Certificate in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools (QCF).

Important notes

You must arrange your own work placement with a school as Global Edulink do not provide this service. We will provide you with the information you need to help you to establish this placement.

Who is this course for?

If you wish to work with children in a school but do not wish to become a Teacher (perhaps because you do not want to do all of the paperwork, assessments and planning associated with that role) then working as a Teaching Assistant is an ideal option.

Teaching Assistants, also known as Classroom Assistants or Learning Support Assistants, help Teachers within the classroom by supporting groups of children with English, Maths and other subjects. They also carry out work with small groups or individual children outside of the classroom under the Teacher’s direction, to help those children with particular work that they have struggled to understand within the lesson.

Teaching Assistants can also sometimes work one-to-one with children who have Special Educational Needs, delivering a programme of work designed by the Teacher, tailored especially for that particular child.

Other duties that you will commonly be expected to fulfil include creating displays for the classroom and wider school environment and photocopying.

Requirements

You must be aged 16 years or older and have a confirmed work placement that will last for the full 12 months of your course. The placement must be within a school, in Foundation (Reception) classes or above. You must have a solid understanding of the English language and have access to a PC and the internet throughout your course, plus basic computer skills.

If you do not have a confirmed placement within a school, you could consider undertaking our Level 3 Award in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools qualification instead.
